This case report article explains how diagnosing endodontic disease requires the careful compilation of subjective and objective data. The information obtained from patients during the subjective examination guides the gathering of objective data during the clinical and radiographic examinations. Two case studies illustrate the importance of history taking and eliciting patient-reported symptoms in obtaining an accurate diagnosis of endodontic disease.
